    In checking my ADD/REMOVE I noticed that I have both Java 6 updates #5 and #3. One is 136mb and the other 133mb. To save some memory is it alright to delete that older update?

    The most recent is 1.6.0_07, so update, then remove all the old ones.

    You can also use JavaRa 1.11 to help remove everything.

    You may even have a old version that will not show up in add/remove.
    Go to Secunia Online Software Inspector and do a online scan and it will tell you what old versions you have.
    You can read post here on the JavaRa. I used it and it worked great.
